Lemon Ricotta Silver Dollar Pancakes
Light and airy lemon ricotta pancake recipe with lots of lemon flavour. I love to served these with an assortment of fresh fruit and whipped cream. Or with fresh berries and fruit syrup.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour3 1/2 Tbsp sugar2 tsp baking powder1/4 tsp baking soda1/2 tsp salt1 cup milk3/4 cup ricotta cheese 3 large eggs1 tsp vanilla extractZest of one large lemon
zest of one lemon
Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl. Mix. Make a well in the center and set aside.
In a second bowl mix the milk, eggs and ricotta. Whisk well,
Add the melted butter, vanilla, grate and add the lemon zest. Whisl together.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Cooking the Pancakes
Preheat a griddle to 350F or a frying pan to medium high heat.
Add a dab of butter to your grill, let melt.
Add scoops of pancake batter about a heaping tablespoon at a time. ( You can make them larger if you like.)
Cook one side of the pancake until bubbles show. Lift up the corner of the pancake, it should be golden brown. If its dark brown, lower the temperature, if its pale, turn your temperature up.
Flip the pancake over and cook the other side until golden.
